Dazed's Senior Fashion Editor picks 10 highlights from the catwalk season
After hundreds of Autumn/Winter 12 shows across New York, London, Milan and Paris, re-sees and press days, Dazed Digital asks Dazed & Confused's fashion editors for their 10 best moments of the upcoming season...
Dazed Digital: What was your favourite Autumn/Winter 12 look?
Robbie Spencer: I love the camoflage masked looks in the Comme des Garçons show. And at Alexander McQueen, the explosion of pink and the clown-like fairy creation...
DD: Favourite shoe?
Robbie Spencer: Prada's rubber-soled shoes in orange and navy blue with flower appliqué.
DD: Favourite accessory?
Robbie Spencer: The floral and lace porcelain chokers at Dolce & Gabbana.
DD: Favourite hair?
Robbie Spencer: I loved the hair both at McQueen and McQ – Patricia van der Vliet's cut for Calvin Klein Collection then McQ. Plus Junya watanabe by Katsuya Kamo and two-tone sprayed hair at Jean Paul Gaultier.
DD: Favourite make-up?
Robbie Spencer: The Miu Miu make up by Pat McGrath was amazing, I love the rhinestones around the eyes.
DD: Favourite model?
Robbie Spencer: I have a few favourites this season! Ava Smith at Models 1; Kolfinna Kristofersdottir, Hedvig Palm and Melissa Stasiuk at Next; Maria Bradley at DNA; Vanessa Axente at Viva and Mackenzie Drazan at Elite.
DD: Favourite production?
Robbie Spencer: My favourite production was the McQ in London, it was such an amazing show to have been part of, the dramatic finale featuring recent Dazed cover star Kristen McMenemy discovering a big party in a forest. She pulled on a rope that emerged from under the leaves on her way back up the catwalk and a brick wall opened up to reveal woodland with a small hut at the side, flashing in a rave of different colours as the models marched out in cannon at the end.
DD: Favourite show location?
Robbie Spencer: Lanvin, which celebrated Alber Elbaz's 10th anniversary at the label.
DD: Favourite soundtrack?
Robbie Spencer: Miu Miu – the music was really exciting and summed up the collection, the 90s doing 60s feel. Björk's 'Venus as a Boy' and 'Violently Happy' featured, followed by Mannequin's 'Take Me to the Club', a song most people will remember from being on the Party Monster soundtrack, a film based on the true story of Michael Alig (played by Macaulay Culkin) and his life in the New York club scene of the early 90s.
DD: Favourite party?
Robbie Spencer: Kanye West's show afterparty! I loved seeing Azealia Banks perform live!
